Lovers of premium hospitality service are in for an exciting experience as the Lagos Marriott Hotel, Ikeja opens its doors for business.
Located in the serene GRA, Ikeja area, the 250-bed, 5-star hotel is a partnership between Marriott International and SIFAX Group.
Speaking at the unveiling of the hotel in Lagos on Wednesday, the general manager, Janse Van Rensburg, noted that the desire to offer premium hospitality services to the Lagos market was responsible for the huge investment in the hotel.
His words: “Every client of Lagos Marriott Hotel is set for an unimaginable premium experience like never before. We assure them of world-class hospitality, super customer satisfaction and royalty treatment.
“Frequent travelers who have points using the Marriott hotel franchise globally can also redeem their points here in Nigeria too. We have an in-club system for our premium members located on the first floor of the hotel.”
Rensburg stated that the hotel had other unique selling points and various amazing products offered its clientele which are non-existent in the country’s hospitality industry.
According to him, “The security of our guests is very paramount to us, which is why every door and window in the facility is bomb-proof. Our pricing is also very commensurate with the quality that we offer.”
The GM also noted that the hotel, which is in the classic premium category on the Marriott quality ranking, would be managed by the franchise owner, Marriott Hotel, for quality assurance purposes.
